What is U2F Security Key?

The FIDO U2F Security Key is a convenient and affordable two-factor authentication solution. It is a specially designed YubiKey for protecting accounts in popular websites and online services, such as Facebook, Gmail, Google Cloud and G Suite, GitHub, Dropbox, Dashlane and many others that support the FIDO U2F protocol. Personal IT security has never been that easy. Just insert the U2F Security Key into any available USB-A port and touch the button — that is all that takes to make the login secure.

HOW IT WORKS – 2 SIMPLE STEPS TO AUTHENTICATION

Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of security to your account that you, and only you, can access in order to prove your identity.

Millions of people use YubiKeys because they’re the easiest to use, super secure, and affordable. Plug in your YubiKey and tap it to log in to your computers, networks, and online services. Keep one on your keychain with the key to your house/car, and a second YubiKey in a safe place as a backup.

Easy-to-use protection with powerful and secure technology

Each Security Key has an individualized secure chip which performs cryptographic functions triggered by a simple touch of the key. You never see the details, but behind the scenes FIDO U2F Security Key provides a unique public and private key pair for each application it protects. Only those keys can correctly complete the cryptographic challenge required for login.

The secure chip is of the same class as those used in SIM Cards, electronic passports, military electronic IDs and chip-and-pin credit cards. Like those devices, the chip is specially “hardened” so it’s extremely difficult to steal the secrets hidden inside. The secrets contained in the Security Key belong to the end-user exclusively and are never transferred, copied or stored by a service provider or any other application provider.

This is not a biometric device, instead it uses a capacitive sensor activated by the small bit of electricity the human body naturally produces.
